☑️ Family
☑️ Friends
☑️ Health
☑️ Relationships


Message from Claire: I hope you find my book interesting and – if you’re going through something similar – my advice is of help to you, too!

With very best wishes, Claire

Foreword by Lauren Oldershaw, Echo Journalist

Claire, who helps people in Essex, London and online across the world, marked her final column as the newspaper’s Agony Aunt with this collection of readers problems on a host of issues, from dealing with addictions, phobias, family problems and moral dilemmas with both a practical and sensitive approach.

A reader was suffering with a debilitating phobia of feathers, another had fallen out with her daughter-in-law before a wedding, while others came to Claire with issues surrounding bringing up children and coping with life.

Not all problems need therapy – some just need an understanding and sensible third party.
